The Verge: Google is ‘pausing investment’ in Allo

The Verge: Google is ‘pausing investment’ in Allo. “If you’ve been using Google’s messaging app, Allo, it’s probably a good time to start thinking about switching to something else. The app isn’t getting dropped in a Google-style ‘Spring Cleaning,’ but development on the app is being ‘paused.’ Specifically, the new head of the communications group at Google, Anil Sabharwal, has made the decision to “pause investment” in Allo and move that team over to focus on Android Messages.”
